Special edition of Fotofestiwal calls for a one of a kind Portfolio Review. After the successful virtual debut last year, Fotofestiwal Lodz is coming back to the live formula in 2021. If you would like to participate and introduce your work to our reviewers, submit until the 26th of May.


PHOTO MATCH’s model breathes new life into the traditional formula of portfolio reviews through placing a special emphasis on the series of open networking events, public presentations and an equal status granted to the reviewers as well as all artists. The event is powered by Futures.


It’s a day dedicated for everyone attending to introduce themselves, their work and practice through short presentations. Based on these introductions you will then choose 2 curators you would like to meet with, additionally you will also be chosen by 2 other curators who’d like to see your work. Which means each participant will have 4 meetings the next day.

DAY TWO: MEETINGS 12th of June 11:00AM – 4:00PM CET

The real deal! All participants attend private meetings held accordingly with the timetable generated based on your choices. Every photographer and reviewer attends four meetings at the most, two of which they’ve arranged themselves. PHOTO MATCH will conclude with an open session, an informal gathering of all participants who can finally enjoy some conversation with someone previously unavailable, with no strings attached.
